O Moinho London is a Portuguese restaurant that we and the Lambeth locals can’t get enough of. Portuguese food perhaps isn’t the immediate thought when people think of going out to eat in London, but when menus can be as good as the one at O Moinho restaurant, it absolutely should be. As is the Portuguese way, the O Moinho menu is built around premium meat and mighty fresh fish and seafood. A standout dish for us is the charcoal grilled octopus topped with onions and garlic, served with punched potatoes and drizzled with hot Portuguese olive oil. You’ll find O Moinho London on Lambeth where we advise heading armed with a reservation.
